GCC 4.4.5 Brings Bug-Fixes
Written by Michael Larabel in Compiler on 3 October 2010 at 09:22 AM EDT. 6 Comments
While GCC 4.5 has been around since this past April, if you are still living with GCC 4.4 for whatever reason (like being hit with a massive performance regression), you may be pleased to know that on this Sunday afternoon there is the GCC 4.4.5 release that's now available. GCC 4.4.5 was delayed a bit, but it's here and offers up bug-fixes but no major new features.

GCC 4.4.5 just carries fixes for serious bugs and regressions found after the GCC 4.4.4 release that also came in April. Besides that, there's nothing new in GCC 4.4.5 but GCC 4.5 continues to be the latest and greatest version of the GNU Compiler Collection though GCC 4.6 is coming along.

The GCC 4.4.5 release announcement by Red Hat's Jakub Jelinek can be found on the GCC mailing list.
